Re: MS SQL Server backups - poor performance with many small databases
I know you have many databases, but for test, can you list databases (say 30) and test that backup? I assume you use instance based backup so all is sequential and you get single parallelism. Try just for test to create group with 30 individual databases in (MSSQL:<DB NAME>) and check if you get delayed execution as well. Simply create separate client and group to test this.
